Faith Comes By Hearing

Project Summary

The purpose of the project is to supply digital players (Proclaimers), which are preloaded with an audio Bible recorded in the Zimbabwean Shona and Ndebele languages. The main outcome is to create Scripture Engagement in a language people relate to easily, thus facilitate a seamless spread of the Word of God. Illiteracy, and visual impairment hinder full spiritual growth of the Church. The Bible Society has initiated the project Faith Comes By Hearing in order to overcome within the shortest time these challenges. FCBH is a program of the church for its members and schools. FCBH aims to bring together a group, a congregation, a local church, a community, a language group, a class, a natural group, and a group of individuals or a family to listen to an audio portion of the New Testament in their mother tongue.The expected impact is to see improved literacy rates and casting the Word of God wider and wider to everyone in formats that are suitable to them.
